Schools out for summer. But do the little darlings need entertaining already? Spas are traditionally adult only zones - a slice of tranquillity away from the hubbub of family life. But sometimes it's good to try something all together. A family get away with something for everyone - including a spa for mum, dad, and even teens. We've had a look at some destination spa hotels that deliver a well rounded family experience, including spa breaks for teens, too. Here's our rundown on the school's out: top spas for teens.
A snug Victorian inn on the outskirts of the Yorkshire moors. A rambling residence with a warming rustic feel. Ensconce yourself in the hotel, or discover the exterior - the children's mecca. The outdoor pool is set on a lovely garden terrace, with picnic tables and chairs dotted about. It's heated all year round so you can swim even when it snows. You can order from a poolside-dining menu in summertime - so there really is an excuse to never leave the hotel. Should the adults want to escape , the hotel has local baby sitters on the books. Why not book in to the spa...
Teens over the age of 16 can use the spa & facilities - The Verbena Spa has a fantastic range of spa treatments available, making a good choice in the hunt for spas for teens.
Our pick: For gents, we like the sound of The Gentleman's Package - which includes 90 minutes of treatments, lunch and a pint of local bitter. Be sure to stretch out in the warm pool first to loosen muscles, allowing the full benefits of the back massage to be felt.
A stunning traditional country house hotel with a really unique set of contemporary treehouse suites in its grounds. For families, the treehouses are perfect, where children can run and squeal with abandon. The kids’ club is impressive, children are taken outside for activities such as nature scavenger hunts, as well as playing with the treasure trove of toys (and technology) inside. The kids’ menu in the restaurant is brilliant, so families can dine together.
The spa at Chewton Glen is award winning - although children's access is restricted to a session each in the morning and afternoon. We think this is the best of both - calm and tranquillity can resume in between family play time!
For treatments, there's a 'junior' selection - choose from a mani, a facial, or a scalp massage using 100% natural oils. So you can indulge in a spa day, with your teens, and treat them to some post exam-stress pampering.
Loved by our Co-Founders as the perfect half term get away on the north Cornish Coast. Set on a spectacular surfing beach, it has a great, easy-going atmosphere, cool, breezy décor and fun places to eat nearby, including Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen. Adults can also spoil themselves in the Swim Club spa, while children will be entertained with organised games, crafts and activities. There's evening entertainment, and not forgetting the hotel’s Extreme Academy for surfing and other watersports. There's also the chance the possibility to make your own waffles at breakfast - and pile on top whatever goodies you want. Perfect for kids. And adults...
In the spa we love the sound of a Hot Rocks Detox. After a day of surfing, hard worked muscles will succumb to heat and pressure. Great for soothing out knots, tightness and easing tension. Book in solo, or as a couple.
Kandima Maldives is much more than just a holiday. This new game-changing destination offers a seriously stylish island setting with extraordinary restaurants and bars and plenty of on-site activities to choose from. An island designed for families: a dicing school, marine and biology centre, Kandiland which is just for kids, and esKape spa - a menu bursting with Natural Spa Factory treatments including the Sea Coconut Secret body therapy, or the Maldivian Ocean Dream massage.
There's also the esKape for little guests - children from the age of 4 can indulge in a spa treatment, including a mini mani pedi. The perfect introduction to a world of calm and pampering after a hard day of Pirate Ship revelling at Kandiland! So not just on of our top spas for teens - it's a top spa for kids, too.
Surrounded by beautiful Lincolnshire countryside and wooden lodges that wouldn’t be out of place in Swiss mountains, Kenwick Park is truly a sight to behold. The lodge accommodation within the grounds makes family trips easy and enjoyable, while the Kidz Club offers activities and swimming to keep children entertained. After a £4.5million renovation the ClubSpa@Kenwick meanwhile means that adults can enjoy the most exquisite spa facilities.
In the spa, there's a plethora of Natural Spa Factory seasonal experiences to choose from. We love the Summer Sunflower Spa Day - including a Sole Reviver Foot Treatment to deeply calm & pamper tired legs & feet.
